Revised version 👎 1/5
It says live streaming. Liars.
Why did you change this app?!🙄 1/5
I hate the new format of this CBS/N app!!!!!😡
Search: Am I Missing Something? 3/5
Where do you search for stories? I can’t find a search bar anywhere on the app.
A great loss 2/5
Really disappointed to lose the old platform for CBS News. It was concise and easy to read, but no more.
The upgrade is so busy and in some cases requires a magnifying glass to see the Headline.
Stories are repeated 5 or 6 times to fill up the categories. I waste more time reviewing headlines to find the stories that interest me than I do reading the material.
It’s obvious to me CBS spent more time on the layout and how to incorporate advertising then they did on the reader experience.
Casting problems 1/5
Worst update ever! It used to be great. Now there are too many options on the opening page, visually clunky and to top it all off, they lost the Chromecast link.
Deleted. Too many options for news for me to mess with crap. Once you lose me, it’ll be hard to get me back.
Just news 2 3/5
The news is too opinionated and too wordy.
No Casting? 1/5
Disappointed that chrome cast doesn’t work with this new app.
Content choices 1/5
Preferred the original app with more headlines and choices of other available sections
Cluttered, busy 2/5
The newest version is too cluttered.. ads take up even more space. Will probably delete the app.
Not improved 1/5
So much easier to find stories in past version. No you just fumble through junk and ads.
Bad user interface after recent update 1/5
They changed the user interface of the app... now there’s a lot more videos instead of articles to read. Currently the user interface is a bit clunky in my opinion.
Bookmark collection in app over years gone in an instant 1/5
By One yogi
I have been using this app for years as a main go-to News app. The collection of bookmarks I had are completely gone in an instant of an update. The white on black type is minuscule and fatiguing to the eyes. All of this creates zero loyalty total and tech fatigue. Those bookmarks were referred to and shared with online groups frequently. Thanks for thinking of the end user. At. All. The app now looks like every other app out there and took away what was valued most with no warning.
Not good 1/5
Unable to find the news broadcast I could just turn on and listen to
You REALLY screwed up this time:( 1/5
What have you done? Where are all my saved articles? Watch a video and there is no way to stop and return to the list, you're trapped. What gives? You took a perfectly good app and removed all the good things about it. No more written content on Sunday Morning shows. You used to have a choice watch the video and/or read the text. Threw that out the window-Next? This is no longer my favorite news app. I doubt I'll be reading any articles OR watching any videos any time in the near future. SAD :(
Removed Chromecast 1/5
No longer can you use your chromecast device with this latest release. And, the app support page only lists questions and answers while the ability to ask a question is broken.
One star for taking away what once made CBS news my goto source of daily news. And no additional stars for making your support page useless for all but the most obvious canned questions and answers.
New design 2/5
I don’t mind the new design. However, functionality has declined. The front page is slow to load, which I assume is due to the videos loading. Also, opening articles has become slower.
New app 1/5
Hate new app but loved old app....new app loads slow where old app was fast
Beautiful app!! 5/5
Excellent app for the news & watching CBS current news programs. Video is stunning!! Great app!!! Wow the new update is stunning! Congratulations on the new design! Much easier to read, navigate & watch!!!!
Not an improvement 1/5
When you click on a story it is nice to get to read the whole thing. There is no reason to go through 5 pages of a few lines just to be exposed to more advertisement and then you get almost to the end and it disappears.
EXAMPLE: The blind dog story with the guide cat.
New update terrible 1/5
Slow, and hard to scan over the news. A complete downgrade
Don't like the new format 1/5
By pea jay
Where's the news? I want to read stories, not listen to them. I want to be able to choose the stories to read, not be fed whatever comes up next.
The worst 1/5
By Huge cbsn fan
I loved the previous format, watched it for hours, throughout the day, really enjoyed it.
Tonight, I was forced to update...lots of bugs, same commercial repeats over and over, story never plays, super frustrating.
If this is your new plan, I'm out.
Too bad, you really had something special.
Don’t like change 1/5
By comenter 22445
Why did you eliminate the content bar? Sometimes I just want sports or finance!!
Love the live streams! 5/5
By Markham Nolan
The nav at the bottom is so simple and clear, live being able to switch from CBSN to new NY local or Sports HQ
Best App in news 5/5
Love it 5/5
Great App. I LOVE CBS NEWS
CBS News 5/5
Excellent, informative, timely and trustworthy
This is it! 5/5
Have always will always choose CBS NEWS
I remember all the great times we shared the news and our emotions with current events
I like the app if I could get it open. It’s been this way for the last two weeks
Should be able to skip advertisements 3/5
Nothing more annoying than having to watch advertisements on prerecorded shows. I won’t watch the show on this app, I’ll just use my dvr.
Jeff Glor 5/5
By Warren, Oh
I wish we could watch the segments with Jeff Glor, even if they’re put on the app afterwards!
Thanks to Ad on CBS Sunday Morning 5/5
I learned about the app there and am grateful I did. The in-depth interviews are enlightening. I appreciate the coverage on such a variety of topics. I even have the trumpet theme on my phone. Wow. Great news coverage.
Great App 5/5
This is a great news app— it is super user friendly, anyone would be able to figure out how to use it. It gets me news quickly and easily.
News that’s newsworthy 5/5
By Buddman xl
This app has what I desire from news journalism as it’s informative; credible & most of all a good source of great stories across the board...thank you CBS for your ability to allow the news to be told & written that serves as a trusted news source...
Stories don’t load 2/5
I’ve enjoyed this app for years but recently I’ve found various stories will never load. I’ve deleted the app and reloaded it, but the problem persists and seems to be worsening.
Has just gone downhill... 1/5
By Ad Free Please
I find myself using this app less and less as they try to monetize it. The adds are almost overwhelming and often I just quit watching when adds start up in multiples.
And an update happens and it tolerable till next update goes backwards.
Just News 5/5
By John from Bucks County
Excellent app. I look for objective reporting and am tired of biased editorializing.
About time! 5/5
By Zipcode Mark
Finally a news outlet that reports the news as it is, without any particular spin on it. Refreshing to say the least. Keep it up.
By Betty Ann1
I love your timely reporting and enjoy being able to see what is happening on the go!
CBS APP works some of the time 3/5
By Hollanbeckwith, Jr
Too many stories too often will not load for no apparent reason.
Recently very buggy - articles are slow to load or don’t load at all 2/5
I’m not sure what changed but many articles never open for me or take a long time to open. This used to be a very responsive app but now I’ve started going to other resources instead. Frustrating!
It’s the NEWS 4/5
Good or bad...they just report the days happenings. No talking heads giving their unwanted opinions!
Just a few issues with the feed on some articles. Kind of weird!
Still the closest to just reporting the news and leaving the bias opinions to FOX and CNN!
Truth in News 4/5
By demand truth
I sometimes get annoyed with the feed but the news you provide is inmensurable to me with my busy life.
Brrrr...app freezes around the clock... 1/5
...and takes forever to load
Poor performance 2/5
I have used this app for at least 2 years. In the past 3 months the app has been failing to download stories very frequently. I try to open a story and get the spinning spokes for as long as I leave it there, no story. Close that story, wait a few seconds and reopen, get text, no photos, and you cannot scroll down past the opening screen to read what is out of frame. Photos are replaced by blank sections with the spinning spokes in them.
News of around the world. 5/5
Yes I really enjoyed cbs news a lot, and for notifying me updates news, an emergency news too...
Great service on any platform 4/5
By Dan iPad 2 Air
I have used this service on Windows iOS and Android. Never really worked on my Huawei mini pad/
I use it all over the world the last four years while living in the EU
Truly a great free service with limited commercials and static ads, as of this date Nov. 2018
CBS takes the high road 5/5
Our family chooses CBS because we see it as fair. And we love the app, website, etc. efforts CBS makes. Please don’t change the way you curate news! In particular, few other sources pick up positive stories, which is the real world. Negativity and alarmist news presents an overwhelming angst that is neither true of the world, nor America. It’s a good world with problems...
Figure out how to display the Headline and the story 4/5
And many times, the headline of the story gets cut off and you’re not sure what it’s saying. In other cases, you click on the story to read the entire article, but only the headline loads
